Jimmy Jib head and lens mount

PostMon Apr 29, 2013 5:19 am

hi guys,

I a buying BMCC 4k and 2k both.

I need help regarding the lens mount as in will I be able to mount Carl ziess compact primes of arri ultra prime directly on the camera or will I be needing an adapter. Mostly I would be using Compact prime T2.1 and Cannon Cinema zoom lense.

Another query I had was is there any specific Jimmy jib head for BMCC, if not then is there any remote operating option while camera mounted on jimmy jib.

any kind of advice or help would be grateful.

cheers

You can use the Carl Zeiss Compact Primes (CP.2) lenses with the Canon mount on EF mount BMCC and BMPC. The Ultra Primes with PL mount won't fit.

You could used the Ultra Primes with PL mount on the MFT BMCC tho.
